Detroit—The annual school Carni

the evening of Friday, Oct. 13, was
a very successful carnival not only
from the financial standpoint but also
from the very enthusiastic way in
which everyone participated in the
games. The co-operation of the stu

and the booths were artistically dec

and signs of various sorts. The large
number 13s posted everywhere con

and capitalized on the Friday the 13th
idea. Both sides of the gym were
lined with booths selling notions,
candy, food, also such games as
roulette, sling shot, darto, archery,
cake walk, fish pond, basketball, a
movie (located on the stage) also the
sponge throw which was entered into
with gusto with Coach Stan Whipple
as the target.
In the center of the gymnasium
was the large bingo booth with num

the door at the entrance was the jail
which caused much merriment during
the evening when many of the lead
ing citizens of Detroit and Idanha as
well as Mongold were kept behind the
bars until after the fine was paid.
Jailors were kept busy and the judge,
Moyne Renner meted out the «?en-
